John Purbrick's force sensitive joystick "mouse" is available
for trial use. For the time being, it will live in his office,
and anyone who want to try it out can drop by, pick it up, and plug
it in directly in place of the regular mouse.
This mouse may be particularily suitable for controlling certain
kinds of parameters as opposed to pointing on the screen, altho
it seems to work out fairly well for pointing as well.
There is some hope that this kind of mouse could eventually
be built directly into the keyboard (as suggested by Carl Hewitt),
and thus be accessible without removing your hands from the keyboard.
